I just called RMG (real mean garage) guys, asking for oil change rates on a 2001 boxster. They charge $220!!! When I asked why was it so high (for comparison, the Stevens Creek dealership charges about $150), I was told the oil was ~$90, oil filter was ~$20, tool 3/4th of an hr (their labor rate is $135), and, they check my wipers, tires pressure, brakes, lights, put a sticker with the oil change date etc :-).

When I asked them if I just wanted them to do the oil change (I can do the checks myself), I was told "same charge".

They may do quality work, but I don't know if its worth _that_ much!
